Digital Leadership: A Crucial Role in Digital Transformations

As organisations are challenged by the increasing pace of new technology, strong digital leadership is needed. Digital transformation is the increasing adoption of digital tools and technologies by an organisation to fundamentally alter both its internal and external processes and functions. The digital transformation of enterprises is enabled and guided by digital leaders with both business and IT competencies, professionalism at the individual level, and a strategic vision on digital capabilities at the enterprise level. This course offers the theoretical and practical tools needed for becoming one of the digital leaders of the future.

Digital leaders lead the way towards new ways of working and facilitate the increase of the digital competences of individuals in tandem with the collective organisational capabilities of the enterprise. This is what successful enterprises are doing. But it remains a big challenge for many businesses.

The Digital Leadership course prepares you to be a digital leader within your organisation. During the course, we discuss what it takes to be a digital leader (as an individual, as an organisation or as a government). Topics that will be addressed are business-IT alignment, corporate governance of IT, legislative aspects, competences and skills (e.g. European Competence framework) and the leading framework Business Information Services Library.

Besides a theoretical background, the course also offers a practical approach. You will explore the complexity and develop your skills in digital leadership in a hands-on business simulation in which you will be part of a team that is responsible for the performance of smooth running business processes and information systems while translating organisational goals to operational actions and dealing with new technological developments and everyday business concerns. Furthermore, an official APMG BiSL Foundation exam is scheduled. The course also offers the opportunity to familiarize yourself with a set of different aspects that are all relevant to digital leadership. Based on real-life cases and experiences of the candidate's different challenges are discussed with input from essential theoretical frameworks and concepts.
